In Topic: New Club Statement.

Many thanks for that Gav. The question remains. Who is telling the truth? Actually, I'm amazed that after all this time it's taken someone like yourself to try and get some answers to all the ducking and diving. I would have hoped our local Press, the mouthpiece of the City, would have found time and space and shown enough interest to have done something similar ages ago. I can't help thinking if it had been the football club or one of the theatres or the racecourse or some bike ride that was heading for oblivion, it would have been front page headlines practically every day of the week until it was sorted. They're often spouting on about "the Press campaign" for this that and the other but don't appear to think the dire straights the Knights are in warrants one. I wonder if they realise that several hundred local residents parted company with around £100 each for season tickets for this year yet we haven't even a ground  where they can sit in a proper stand in relative comfort to enjoy a game. The Press claimed last Saturday one of the Knight's directors resigned 3 weeks ago. The knghts issued a statement around the same time saying NO director had resigned. I would have thought The Press would at least want to clarify that point but no, not a thing is said about it in this weeks editions leaving the supporters with another puzzle to ponder. The whole thing stinks!

  Once again Gav., many thanks for trying and at least trying to get to the bottom of this web of intrigue.

12 Apr KO:15:00 League 1 Rd: 2
Oxford RLFC v York City Knights
Iffley Road

Referee: S Mikalauskas

Will be there

He's the ref we had at Featherstone against the Lions. He's new to our league this season and had a good game that night, clamping down on the high shots, off sides and the holding down right from the start. I wish there were a few more around like him. He was like a breath of fresh air! Let's hope he keeps up the good work and doesn't get like the majority of refs we see most weeks, even in Super League.

Not so sure - but phone hasn't rung yet.

To be fair Peter, a lot of that was actually in the Press recently.

You must get a different Press to us in Woodthorpe.

I know! "We" have never had a bean out of the bar, someone else has.


Oh! Have I missed something? Have the club's accounts been published?

This squad of players could go places, there's no doubt about that. Don't think any of the fans doubt the ability of the playing and coaching staff though, so any comments of "doubters" or "doom-mongers" regarding that is way off the mark. A cracking bunch of skillful, professional and hard-working lads who have proved their worth to the city and they should be rewarded as such with a decent facility to play and train in.

I don't think I've seen any reference to "doubters" or "doom mongers" anywhere on here in relation to either the players or the coaching staff Simon.
